The dial-a-serf service said that on May 4 of this year some miscreant was able to break into one of DoorDash's technology providers, and view account information including the physical addresses of punters, order histories, phone numbers, and hashed and salted passwords, plus the last four digits of some users' credit card numbers or bank accounts.

"Approximately 4.9 million consumers, Dashers, and merchants who joined our platform on or before April 5, 2018, are affected," DoorDash said in its disclosure. "Users who joined after April 5, 2018 are not affected."
